you won’t make any money with it because it’s not targeted, but if you know what you’re doing it won’t hurt your website for sure. I purchased traffic from Fiverr for $5 for a month for one of my websites last year and after a week of the traffic coming in my website had started slowly gaining rankings. But as soon as the traffic stopped it dropped the rankings again to its initial positions, and also, it didn’t gain too much increase anyway (I think it just went from page 6 of google to page 3 or something like that). So, it does work to boost the rankings a little bit, but it needs to be valid traffic (from specialty forums, reddit, social media, etc.) and it also doesn’t convert into customers / money. So, keep that in mind!
LMAO… good! xD
agreed with the non-ads route. Kudos to you :)
it will save the animals, not the planet. Giving up eating meat is a sensible thing to do (no, I’m not vegan, but I admire the ones who have the mental strength to be and I hope that soon I will follow their lead)
oh, 3 days is not that bad. I thought it might take you several months of continuous, back breaking work LOL. I can wait 3 days standing on my head (manner of speaking).
And yeah, I was actually interested in scraping posts / articles for keywords that I can market on. But, no hurry! One step at a time and we will eventually get there :)
If you manage to keep your little software updated and relevant - and as Mastodon grows bigger (I’m thinking of getting 100s of millions of people using it across all instances) - you will have a goose that lays golden eggs. It will be a real value for marketers, you could probably charge $100s per month for its usage but I obviously don’t recommend it because then I’d be left out cause I don’t have that kind of money yet :p
Anyway, keep up the good work! I’ll give your improved search engine a new try in 3 days… or 7… or however long it takes…
lulz… I know that this is not right, but I’ve seen women like that (blatantly and obviously lying to you in your face like you’re some removed monkey), but some of them are so cute when they do it. I could not get mad at them :)
I don’t get it… Where am I going to get the results from that I should manually put in if the search engine doesn’t let me search anything to begin with??
Also, any rough estimate of when the crawler will be usable?
this is disturbing 😬
the priest is having so much fun :)
haha good one :)
of course! Mega corporations are always about their privacy and profits, everyone and everything else is secondary
lol this reminds me of another wife-related joke (disclaimer: I’m not hating on wives, this is just a joke and should be taken as such)…
one night, someone was speeding way over the legal speed limit on a highway and at some point, after a police car finally managing to make the guy pull over after a long car chase the cop gets out of his car, goes to the speedy driver and says: “look, it’s been a long night, I’m tired, I’m almost off my shift and I want to go home. If you give me a good reason why you were speeding I’ll let you go with a warning instead of giving you a ticket”. To which the driver replies: “My wife had just left me and I thought you found her and wanted to return her back to me” :))
Loved this joke when I first heard it many years ago…
um, this is not like google, right? I just tried to search for something, but I didn’t get any result, so I’m not sure how to use this…
But then again, I just joined this mastodon / fediverse / activitypub weirdness that I never heard of before, so I’m still trying to wrap my head around how all of this works. The worst part is that I’m not a tech-savvy guy, so it’s even harder for me to understand what the hell I’m doing LOL
But, hey! At least - hopefully - we get rid of the twitter, fb, youtube, google monopolies cause I’ve had enough with these greedy giants. Mere mortals like myself can’t made a dime using their services, but mass spammers and big budget sharks break the bank every day.
So anyway, how do I use your search engine to find specific content across the entire fediverse (I believe that this is what all these websites like mastodon and lemmy are called like, right?)
